Super Tournament on the Potomac river

Super Tournament on the Potomac river
The super tournament is the last tournament of the year, and is the qualifier for the regional tournament, on the Potomac river.  For me and my partner it came to and end at the weight in on Saturday, the top 17 went on to fish on Sunday. My partner and I experienced problems from the start of the day, my partner was coming over from Smallwood State Park when he experienced engine problems and had to be towed in to Leesvania State Park..  The tournament director us we could still fish for the day, having to us the trolling motor all day, and getting started 30 minutes after everyone else. So we mad the best of the day as we could, going around the bend from the park and spending the entire day there fishing a large grass flat. For not having the big engine and using just the trolling motor we still caught fish, between us we caught between 18 and 22 fish, my partner culling 5 times and me catching 3 of 6 bites, lost 2 in the grass. Between the 2 of us we used a frog and chatterbaits in the grass, thats all we used to catch the fish, my partners weight was 12 lbs 6 oz and my weight was 6lbs and 10 oz, makes me wonder what my weight would have been if I didn't loose those 3 fish. Well its now back to fishing the ponds in my area and getting to the river untill the 2012 season starts next March at Lake Gaston, maybe I'll have better luck.
